In an economy where the foreclosure rate is skyrocketing, more and more real estate investors are buying foreclosed homes to "Fix and Flip." ServiceLive.com and The National Fix and Flip Network are working together to help those investors save time and money on home repairs and improvements through the new ServiceLive.com online services marketplace.
"Our members are constantly buying homes in foreclosure which typically need a tremendous amount of work," said Eric M. Dale, vice president of The National Fix and Flip Network. "We are delighted to work together with ServiceLive to help our members save time and money on their extensive projects. With ServiceLive, they can name their price, their schedule and not pay until they are completely satisfied with the work! You can't ask for anything better than that!" explained Dale.
"The National Fix and Flip Network is a great resource for real estate investors, so we're thrilled to be part of the network," said George Coll, president of ServiceLive. "ServiceLive.com offers those investors the tools to help them manage a large number of projects and save time and money."
NFAFN is encouraging both the contractors who are listed in its directory and its membership to join the ServiceLive marketplace. ServiceLive.com will have a significant presence on the NFAFN site (www.nfafn.com) through banners and editorial copy explaining the benefits of hiring service pros through the online marketplace. In addition, ServiceLive is sponsoring NFAFN's "$150,000 Fix for Free Giveaway," by providing the labor required to fix up the winning home.
"NFAFN members will have the peace of mind knowing that all of our service pros have been pre-screened," said Coll. "As well as the control of naming their price and preferred schedule."

ServiceLive.com is the first online marketplace that allows homeowners and businesses to name their price for home improvements and repairs.

Through the marketplace, buyers arrange for services with the Service pros they chose. Service pros are independent providers and are not employees or contractors of ServiceLive. ServiceLive, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sears Holdings based in Hoffman Estates, Ill.
